Up Week - Top SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Begintermediate

The month of June is our swing month - we'll spend one week on the lower trails, and the next week on the upper trails.

This week's ride will climb to the top of SFU!!!! We have spent the month of May at the bottom of Burnaby Mountain, it's time to step up our game and see what the mountain really has to offer.

Riding level: Begintermediate*

We'll head up North Road and Dead Moped then turn up the Trans Canada Trial to the top of SFU. We'll head over to the Naheeno park trail and then over to ride down Gear Jammer, Upper Cut and finishing on Lower Snake.

This will be an easy ride - taking our time to session some of the new trails. If you have questions - send me a message or post a comment. I will alternate rides in June - one week up - one week down.

 

*(which means - some experience/comfort on trails and obstacles)

    No rain! Lots of mud. Did 3 laps. 2 climbs and 1 shuttle. Legs are good and rubbery! Gear jammer was in surprisingly good condition despite all the rain this week.

  • Jeff B

    Don't let the rain scare you everyone! Even if it's raining a bit, it's still supposed to be 18 degrees out! It's gonna be fun!

      Amen to that, I think it was Charles who said that if you aren't out in the rain...you aren't in Vancouver!

      I've been riding in the rain since I started this season, so usually I am ok with rain. But today I would have to go to work by bike, in the rain, and somehow keep myself in form for business attire after... mission impossible =(

      June 26, 2013

  • Kyle

    Very possibly yes

    June 26, 2013

  • Fiona

    Caught a cold and just can't face the climb tonight. :( See you all soon!

  • Elena

    Anyone wants to take one with bike from dt or nearby? Will pitch in for gas!

    • Elena

      Hey Hanning, I am raining out, sorry! I have a very poor justification: I don't think I will enjoy the ride in the rain tonight.

      June 26, 2013

    • Henning

      Ok, thanks for letting me know.

    I live at SFU I'm going to ride down and meet you guys but I rode over to north road and didn't really see a main parking lot just wondering where we meet exactly are we meeting at the very end of north road right by the gate that's my guess thanks

    June 26, 2013

    • Jeff B

      The lot is on North Rd just north of Chapman ave.

    Rain out =( too tired to fight with the rain

  • Angela

    Conflict with a work meeting. Doing the Thursday ride instead. Guess this means I better not try Fromme next week?

    June 25, 2013

    • Richard

      Why not? You will be fine! Do not let Fromme freak you out... it's a mountain, with trails, we ride them - thus the term mountain biking! :-)

      June 25, 2013

    • Angela

      Yay! Ok. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'm in.

      June 25, 2013

  • Tito

    I can't go this time (small accident in Fromme last weekend) I will see you guys soon!

  • Matt

    Hi Richard,

    I will have to leave around 7:30pm. Hope that is okay, otherwise, I'll give the spot to someone else. Thanks.

      I'll let you know for sure after tomorrow night - but I expect you'll be pressed for time. It will take between 30 and 50 minutes for the group to get to the top - and then we have to make our way down.

      Matt - I sent you a message!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
